Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977; middle name sometimes written Aron) was an American singer, actor and musician. A cultural icon, he is commonly known simply as "Elvis", and is also sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll" or "The King".

As I was driving through Memphis over the weekend, I couldn’t resist stopping at Graceland. I’ve been through Elvis Presley’s house quite a few times, but on this visit, I finally splurged on the platinum ticket. So, in addition to lingering in the Jungle Room and paying your respects at the grave, you can also see the car museum, his airplanes, his military memorabilia and — my personal favorite — an exhibit called “Sincerely, Elvis,” which is essentially a parade of his outrageous jumpsuits.
